Monroe Hall Update

Steve Hanna, chair of the geography department, has posted new photos of the inside of the renovated Monroe Hall. You can see them, and comment here: http://umwgeography.org/2011/06/24/monroe-hall-ready-for-its-close-up/#more-998.

Facilities Services began moving office furniture and classroom furniture into lecture halls and office suites last week. Faculty began moving into Monroe Tuesday and Wednesday. Over the course of the next few weeks UMW will receive computer lab furniture and computers, seminar room furniture, and build-out of the large lecture hall will be completed. Installation and testing of classroom audio-visual systems will also be completed. Facilities Services has asked that faculty and staff who want to tour the newly refurbished building postpone their plans until after August 1, so final construction and installation will not be disrupted. Monroe Hall, named after the fifth president of the United States, James Monroe, was completed in 1911 and is one of the original buildings on campus.
